The research in the group focusses on the following areas. For details see Research on this webpage.

  • Ab initio methods for investigating the structure, dynamics and reactivity of large chemical systems
  • Applications to solid materials and molecules
  • Heterogeneous catalysis (zeolites, transition metal oxides)
  • Adsorption of small molecules in MOFs (carbon capture, water harvesting)
  • Structure and reactivity of gas phase oxide clusters


The group participates in:

  • NSF/DFG Confine Project: Diffusion of Water Confined in Nanopores
  • International Max Planck Research School (IMPRS) "Functional Interfaces in Physics and Chemistry"
